I have a language pack installed. That's giving my shop the language it needs. only when transactional mails are send out some parts are not translated. I decided to add them myself in a nl_NL.csv file. But unfortunately that's not applied. So How to deal with this and where to have the csv file loacated? I know I could change the templates as well, but that's taking a lot of time and the parts I need are general "subject" phrases.

Like these:

"Your %store_name order confirmation","Uw Bestelling van %store_name"
"Your %store_name order has shipped","Uw Bestelling is verstuurd %store_name"
"Invoice for your %store_name order","Uw Factuur von %store_name"
"Your Order <span class=""no-link"">#%increment_id</span>","Uw bestelling <span class=""no-link"">#%increment_id</span>"

This is where I have the csv file now:

This is what the mail looks like now:

You have to keep your translate csv file inside your theme root i18n folder.

Currently You have placed csv file at wrong folder.

Your csv file path,

app/design/frontend/{Vendorname}/{themename}/i18n/nl_NL.csv file.

You cant keep csv file inside your theme module folder.

Run command,

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US nl_NL

Clear cache and remove var folder.

  • I tried this but still not working. My mail looks like this now some parts are not translated. have tried with the file in: app/design/frontend/{Vendorname}/{themename}/i18n/nl_NL.csv app/code/i18n/nl_NL.csv but not applied? Also run: hp bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US nl_NL and emptied the cache/ static. – mr_typo3 Dec 7 '16 at 9:32

  • What do you mean by "root" in app/ or in /var/www/html/ ? – mr_typo3 Dec 7 '16 at 9:39
  • your theme root app/design/frontend/{Vendor}/{themename}/i18n – Rakesh Jesadiya Dec 7 '16 at 9:40
  • I moved it from module into: app/design/frontend/{Vendor}/{themename}/i18n but that did not work. – mr_typo3 Dec 7 '16 at 9:45

Solved this issue by removing the language pack which was installed. And install an other better maintained language pack found through github.
